I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, it was FINALLY warm here this weekend and we were able to spend some time outside and not freeze our buns off! I actually worked in my garden, WOO HOO!
I will share what I did in a later post.
I also wanted to point out what a dork I am.
I told you that I was going on a day trip on Tuesday and as I was talking to my future SIL today she kindly pointed out to me that it is NEXT Tuesday, not this Tuesday.
Apparently I am making time fly a bit faster than it needs to.
So, thank you so much for all your well wished on my trip, I will save those for next Tues. :)
I wanted to share with you some beautiful gifts that I received in the mail recently. My dear friend Sandra from A Frugal French Girl, who I shared her beautiful poem with here, sent me these amazing treasures.
She has such a beautiful heart and soul.
A beautiful wooden box filled with seashells, a vintage hanky, blue lace trim, magnets, heart stickers, seasoning for dips, a small tray, driftwood and a small key framed in a shabby white frame.
Sandra was so cute, she wrote in her letter that I needed to paint the box and tray white! :)
Tucked away in the box was also this cutout key and on the back was written a message that has stuck with me......
These words are so true!
Since I have started blogging I have met some of the most kindest souls that lift me up through words, comments, gifts and even phone calls. I have never met any blogging friends, which is the hardest part of all this, but I have felt such a connection and such a kindredship (not sure if that is a word) that it I feel so blessed everyday when I open up my computer and see you.
I just received this beautiful package the other day from my dear friend Cricket at Gypsea Nurse. She has such an amazing soul and she is so inspiring through her words, photos and honesty.
All wrapped up were..
a jar of sand and shells, a large shell, an awesome T-Shirt, a luggage tag with my initial in a clam shell and a necklace that says simply..
The card that the necklace was attached to read this..
(the back of the t-shirt also reads this)
It is amazing how people come into your life and have such an impact in it. Thank you Sandra and Cricket, your words ring in my heart.
"The Key to Friendship is Kindness"
"Love This Life"
I also wanted to add this:
My dear friend Marie from Sally Lee by the Sea emailed this to me, what she said and this quote made me cry.
I am so blessed to have such amazingly
in all of YOU!
to all of you who spend a bit of time with me each week, comment, email and just show your support not only for me, but other bloggers and friends in blogland.
